Tisk, Tisk….This comes as no surprise considering the man that started Liberty is the same one that started Jackson Hewitt, then sold out to an investment company after being sued to shut down 125 stores by the government. For the same reason….Fraudulent Returns.
Here is what i need you to understand. When you step into one of those stores for the first time, you don’t know if that person has been a tax preparer for 10 years or 10 minutes. Also, they are timed…the quicker they get you in and out, the more clients they see…the more money they make. So, they don’t care about you..and they probably missed a credit/deduction that could have resulted in a larger refund. Lastly, some preparers are trying to make sure you get a large refund no matter what. Either by adding businesses the client does not own or children that aren’t theirs. That my friend, is fraud! And they Knowingly committed fraud. The IRS is cracking down on these practices and are fining the companies, the preparers AND the clients BIG! Penalties and Interest are no joke!
I said all that to say this: Choose wisely! There are some reputable tax businesses out there that not only know how to prepare taxes, but can also explain what goes on behind that software. They take their time and get to know the client and they are confident.
If you are in the RDU, NC or USA…try Anissa Barbee of Transformation Tax,Whitney Salles of Tax Time, Nitisha Page of Jewels Tax Service and Kenisha Pate of K&C Tax Service…..How do i know…because their knowledge is my concern.
